In this technological age, we’re more connected than ever – but does that solve the great human condition of loneliness? Does more choice help or hinder us? Elizabeth Tan and Emily Witt discuss technology’s role in shaping our connections with each other.

Tickets go on sale at 9am Friday 21 July. This session is able to be booked on a Festival Pass.
